PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

Pitbull 4 Config Menu

PitBull4 is a continuation of PitBull.

Differences from PitBull 3:

  • It's mostly done, but not entirely done thus why there are still only betas (despite this it is still very stable).
  • Documentation is written before functions
  • Much easier for third-party extensions.
  • Options will be much, much simpler. In 3.0, there's about 200 panels that you can mess with, it's overwhelming. I want to bring this down to somewhere around 10.
    • Layouts are defined deterministically and unit groups use the layout rather than ad-hoc layouts on a per-unit basis. This will make setting up your unit frames far, far easier.
    • Due to some decisions made, 4.0 is actually more configurable than 3.0. As a layout designer, you will have a lot more control over how things look. You can have different fonts on the same frame, different textures, more precise positioning, and a whole slough of other things.
  • CPU Efficiency will be taken much more seriously.
  • It uses Ace3 instead of Rock.

    Looks to me like you updated without quiting out of the game. This is in active development. Files are moving around. Updating while the game is running is bound to lead to all kinds of weirdness.

    Guys I had to go back to using Quartz because the castbar bugs like no tomorrow. The addon otherwise is perfect.

    Wondering if someone out there can tell me if there is a way to hide the party frames while in a raid. I can't find it anywhere. I know I've missed a couple things in the past that I found through the comments here :)

    SS of this in action?

    I'd like to see some more expansive text placement features so layouts like oUF_Lyn can be reproduced in Pitbull. I tried with the version from a few days back and it wouldn't let text sit over a frame border.

    My health bar changes to red occasionally - sometimes when I go below 100%, sometimes after my health is much lower. I am not sure I should post this as a ticket or whether I can just adjust a setting. I have color by class selected and have not made any changes to the colors settings themselves.

    thanks.

    [EDIT: I figured it out and decided to post in case anyone else was wondering: I had banzai on. Simple solution. :)]

    If anyone are wondering how to get ShortClass to work with Death Knights in DogTag 3.0, this is how:

    [Outline][Name:HostileColor] [(AFK or DND):Angle] [if IsPlayer and Class = "Death Knight" then "DK":ClassColor:Paren elseif IsPlayer then ShortClass:ClassColor:Paren end]

    =)

    Would be nice if ckknight would fix this.

    Otherwise, this addon just keeps getting better and better. And best of all: It's not "unstable" like the old one was!

    I have one Idea. Wenn I crate some Layouts the layouts are in the profile x but wenn i have the profile y i haven't the layouts.
